Audrey Mae arrived December 26 at 4:07 pm, 7lb 6oz 20.5 in (she was estimated at 7lb 14oz on Thursday so not too far off)! I'll give you my cliff notes birth story. Came in at 6am to be induced, I was already at 3cm, started pit at 8:30 am, broke my water at 10:30, at noon I was 5 cm and decided I'd had enough contractions and asked for the epi, after 4 attempts and 30 minutes they finally got the epi in at 1 pm. (My back is killing me right now thanks to all the pokes) Once I got the epi I was totally relaxed and was fully dilated and ready to push by 3:45, they scrambled around setting everything up and after 10 minutes of pushing I had my baby! She had the cord wrapped around her neck once, but it didn't cause any issues and I got a very small tear that didn't require any stitches.
Compared to my delivery with my ds this recovery has been a breeze so far, I have very little pain besides my back and my heavy bleeding has already subsided. I'm feeling pretty good and she is a great nurser so far. The hormones are starting to get me though, I'm getting hot flashes and already starting to get the random urges to cry for no reason. This picture doesn't do her justice, she's much cuter not covered in goo from delivery and she has a full head of thick dark hair, I'll share more photos once I get home tomorrow
